First hometown show in a few months! Really excited to play for the good people of Bomberville again. (Side bar: We’ve heard Camberville - Cambridge + Somerville used before, but did we just coin Bomberville - Boston + Cambridge + Somerville?) We’ll be trotting out a couple new not-what-you’d-expect covers, and possibly even a new song of our own. Be there.
No big deal.
New show date announced:
Wed. Dec. 19th at T.T. the Bear’s in Cambridge, MA
Opening for Churchill (touring indie folk rock band from Denver, CO)

Time for a new band photo! Thanks to the very talented Sarah Barges for taking this picture and editing it for us.
This time around, we finally got a chance to take a band photo while the sun was still out. Thanks to the very talented sun for making this photo look less dark and gloomy than the last few did.
How you know you’ve been playing guitar too much… It’s a hot day in Boston today, and I think it got stuck to my back during my nap. (Taken with Instagram)

I Love This New Stunning HD View of Earth So Much I Could Hug it
Before you go any further, make that video 1080 and go as big as your processor will let you.
Elektro-L is a Russian weather satellite currently sitting in geostationary orbit at 36,000 km above the Indian Ocean. This video represents almost one week of images as observed from that satellite, one shot every half hour.
How does this stunning view differ from other “blue disk” shots? For one thing, it’s incredibly high-definition (121 megapixels, with each pixel equating to about 1 km). It’s also the first such image composed from one single image. That’s right, NASA stitches theirs together from many images (not that they aren’t awesome). There’s four light channels combined in this image, the usual red, blue and green as well as infrared (which makes vegetation look orange).
I could watch it for hours. So peaceful.
They’re heeeeere… (Taken with instagram)
We just released our second single, “Extra Gravity” today! Give it a listen, and tell all your friends. Please. Please?
OUR FIRST SINGLE COMES OUT RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!
The time has come, folks. We’re ready to announce the OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE of Side One of Planted.
Thursday, May 17th, 2012
We’ll be having CD release party that night at Middle East Upstairs in Cambridge, MA, and we’ve handpicked three other amazing bands for the bill that night. But we’ll tell you more about that later. Because there’s some even more exciting news for now.
We’re releasing the first single from the record, "Plans", one week from today! You can head over to our bandcamp page - http://cowgill.bandcamp.com - to check it out the moment it’s released. You can also head there right now to get a closer look at the (awesome, if you ask us) album art that Dan painstakingly put together by carving each layer of the design out of a wood block and making ink prints.
Want to stay up-to-date with all the fun stuff coming up for us (releasing the first half of our debut album, announcing tour dates, posting photos and other random funny stuff, etc.)?
Here’s a superfan checklist for you, if that kinda thing is your bag:
And if you’ve already done any or all of these things, thanks so much!
